The Way of the Warrior -X-
May 23, 2022
Those who know
do not speak.
Those who speak
do not know.
Black the passages.
Shut the doors.
Let all sharpness be blunted,
all tangles untied,
all glare tempered
all dust smoothed.
This is called the mysterious leveling.
He who has achieved it cannot either
be drawn into friendship or repelled,
cannot be benefited, cannot be harmed,
cannot either be raised or humbled
And, for that very reason, is highest of all creatures under heaven.
~ Lao Tzu, The Way and Its Power
